2nd Cranksgiving Ride in Poughkeepsie

There will be a sPOKe/8-ward ride Saturday, November 18, and it's a special one! With inspiration from Cranksgiving rides that happen around the country, we've organized Poughkeepsie's second annual Cranksgiving bike ride.

What it is:

Like all 8-ward rides, it's a chance to get together with friends and neighbors and ride in the City of Poughkeepsie. This time, there will be a handful of stops where group members can, if they desire, purchase nutritious food. The ride culminates in delivery of the collected food to Dutchess Outreach, where it will supply the Nourish Your Neighbor backpack program, benefiting Poughkeepsie City School District students on weekends, when they do not have access to free school meals. http://cceorangecounty.org/food/nourish-your-neighbor

Make sure to bring a backpack if you do not have storage on your bike!  Join us!
